Tim Western @VeretaxA while ago I searched the internet for testing Quotes to make a list of my own to use for tweeting or to put on my website, or whatever... But I never did do anything with it. But the tweet reminded me of this effort. I tweeted in reply some quotes from the list I made:
I wonder if anyone has collected some of the most famous (or infamous) quotes relating to software testing.
“Quality is free, but only to those who are willing to pay heavily for it.” – T. DeMarco and T. Lister

"A good model guides your thinking, a bad one warps it." - Brian Marick
"Quality is free, but only to those who are willing to pay heavily for it." - Lister, DeMarco:
"Testing a product is a learning process." - Brian Marick
“Actual tests are part of planning too. At least, they can be, if done consciously.” - Shmuel Gershon
"If you're gonna manage testers or any highly cognitive work, then you need to participate in the work.” - James Bach
“Exploratory Testing is not so much a thing that you do; it's far more a way that you think.“ - Michael Bolton
“Pay attention to zeros. If there is a zero, someone will divide by it.” - Cem Kaner
“If you don’t care about quality, you can meet any other requirement” - Gerald M. WeinbergThese are the short quotes that fit into a tweet. The list I made had much longer quotes. I got these quotes from Twitter but most of them from some websites. So here are the websites I checked, enjoy them!
